Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This patient was in her 50s and wanted to look like herself but a few years younger. We decided to go with a modified version of a facelift after a consultation in my New York practice.
I have found that the vast majority of patients want minimaly invasive procedures. They want to look better but not like a different person. They certainly don't want to look like a surgeon's masterpiece. That is what prompted me to develop the Naturalift mini facelift operation. There is a limited incision, which leads to less recovery time, but since I'm able to put the basic archtecture of a youthful face back in place, patients seem to like the results.
For this patient, the upper eyelids were also lifted.
